the 30s after we drop back into the 40s this afternoon, but nor where near the 60s we saw yesterday. and at the shore 45 degrees and a breezy one, too. i'll break it down hour by hour when i'm back in ten minutes, but first katey zachary has your first alert traffic. i want to start out with a live look on the schuylkill expressway. you can see this vehicle here blocking all traffic. that's because there's some construction eastbound. it's closed right at the vine street expressway all the way to south street. so this vehicle should lift around 5:00 in the morning. westbound you're really not having any delays. you might find some construction or around south street, but it's not closing anything. 95 looks really good. we do have an issue on the
burlington bristol bridge. alternate lanes might see construction. that should clear around 5:00 a.m. 4:33 right now. this morning carson wentz is giving you a chance of a lifetime to see the eagles play at the super bowl. >> hey, randy. >> reporter: yeah, this is question everybody is asking themselves this week. how do i score a ticket to the big game without shelling out thousands of dollars? back in december you might remember an eagles fan here in philly actually offered to sell his knee on craigslist for tickets to the super bowl. wentz tweeted yesterday donate to the aol foundation for a chance to win two tickets to the super bowl, a meet and greet
with carson himself. he said the minimum donation is just $10 to enter. of course more entries give you a better chance. and also a better option. a local charity called the elpis foundation is issuing off two tickets. this charity helps raise money to fight lung cancer. but if all of these options fail you and don't win, you're going to have to come up with a much more creative solution. we're going to talk to early bird eagles fans to talk about what they would give to go to the big game. for now live in center city, randy gyllenhaal, nbc 10 news. here's a sign the eagles super bowl dreams are getting closing and becoming a reality. home of super bowl lii, crews are still putting the finishing touches on the stadium ahead of the game.
images of eagles safety malcolm jenkins and defensive tackle fletcher cox are standing guard outside city hall. nick foles performance shows why he's the best in the business. >> yeah, foles has the highest quarterback rating and percentage completion in history. and people behind the scenes say even though carson wentz is not on the field, it's a big part of why foles is turning out to be quite a soldier for the birds. >> it's one of the greatest things about a person that you can say is when you see him celebrating somebody else's success, even though when you know it's at the same position, i don't care, human nature tells you that's hard to do. it's been fun to see those two do that. it's fun to see carson truly have the ability to celebrate nick's success and also with the
frustration knowing he wants to be there. eagles guard tweeted this image of a recent delivery. you can see fly eagles fly skrauld scrawled on the box. the only place you can watch the super bowl is right here on nbc 10. we are the official television station of the philadelphia eagles. that means you can watch every moment of the action, before, during, and after the game right here. well, school will never we the same for hundreds of kentucky high school students after they had to run for their lives from a gunman. this morning their school remains closed. this is our first picture of one of the victims in the shooting at martial county high school. bailee holt was just 14 years old. her aunt called her a precious soul and said her parents should not have to bury their child. >> in the building, please. in the reck center. >> students ran out of the school yesterday morning. they had been trained on how to
